This Beach Bungalow, located in Galveston, Texas was a new build project. The home was built as a part of a new development beach community, with pre-selected finishes and materials. Mark Ashby Design reselected all new finishes from the ground up including flooring, countertops, tile, slab, hardware, plumbing, and furnishings. We added ceiling beams, shiplap to selected walls and wallpaper to the elevator, to add character to an otherwise simple aesthetic.
The clean neutral palette was a thread throughout the home to complement the landscape of the beach. We like the color palette to flow from room to room, so the furnishings could be intermixed anywhere in the home. Indoor/Outdoor fabrics were selected, along with solid materials to withstand the seaside elements and three young boys.
